  1. We're open! Come visit us for an 'outdoor-only' ZOOVENTURE!

    Wed, 01/13/2021 - 2:52 pm

    The Calgary Zoo is open for daily zoo visits and we have returned to a one-way Zooventure! Choose your route as you follow one-directional arrows that take you through the zoo on a self-guided tour, with lots of animals to see along the way.  

    Timed tickets are required and must be purchased online in advance. Tickets are not sold onsite. 

    A friendly reminder that our indoor animal habitats & buildings are currently closed (with the exception of Kitamba Café, retail shops and washrooms) in accordance with provincial health and safety measures. 

    We continue to operate daily under the enhanced public safety precautions including: remaining an outdoor-only space, reduced visitor capacity to 15%, advanced timed tickets required, one-way path flow on the island, masks strongly recommended everywhere at the zoo & mandatory indoors (Kitamba Café, retail gift shops, & washrooms), and physical distancing will be strictly enforced by staff.

    We appreciate your understanding and look forward to warmly welcoming you!
